    We have a large garden - too large for a bit of light tinkering around and it's getting a bit much for me now. When we bought the house, 11 years ago, we thought the garden was nowhere as large as it is and that was because the previous owner had deliberately left it over-grown. When I started work on it - cutting back trees, bushes and brambles, the true horror became evident.

    I work on it most days as it needs constant work but it's the only real exercise I get, so it's worth persevering. When it's under control and tidy, it's lovely to sit out there and ponder.

    Pressure washed slabs last week (had forgotten they were different colours)





    And de-weeded slabs at front (they're already growing back)

    I love the feel and ambience of being in a warm greenhouse or shed. It's nice when it rains too.

    Is it a good time to scarify the grass now ? I call it grass because it's a poor excuse for a lawn. I scarified it in the early Spring but due to the drought since, the grass has thinned out and the weeds, especially Clover and Moss have done very well. It's a right old mess.

    im leaving it in, as it keeps the grass down

    ..and you'd be better leaving it til there is a prolonged bit of rain for a few weeks forecast..autumn is often best

    It rained here a bit around 1230, so I thought I'd try a bit of light scarifying. It doesn't look bare, just scruffy now and will look better after a cut. It has rained quite hard twice since I did it, so it's quite green now and with less Clover.

    Done quite a bit recently:
    Put up the new fruit cage.
    Weeded the Onions.
    Trained the Apricot and put up some new support wires.
    Sorted out the Polytunnel
    Made new trellis for the climbing rose.......

    and no, I don't get as much time to listen to music as I'd like!

    That all looks very professional and those onions outnumber mine by about 10 x
